This is one of those days where I have a little bit of everything going on - dyeing yarn, shipping orders, answering email, pulling inventory for the weekend show. With any luck I'll also finish a new sample and maybe settle on my next new project. Just enough variety to make the day interesting.
I glanced at the calendar first thing this morning, and it's a good thing I did. In addition to a reminder that today is my sister and my niece's birthday (mother and daughter sharing the same birthday), I realized that April is right around the corner.
There's just enough time for the March giveaway. Leave a comment and include your Ravelry ID. What signs of spring are visible in your neck of the woods? Are you knitting for spring and/or summer? What's your favorite color as we transition to warmer weather? What knitting project has captured your attention?
The winner, chosen at random, will receive a skein of Dirty Water DyeWorks yarn - winner's choice. The contest closes on Tuesday, March 31, 2015.
I talk with a lot of knitters. One of the most frequent comments I hear concerns the Kitchener stitch. Many knitters despise this useful technique and will go to great lengths to avoid it.
If you're looking for a new way to achieve the look of the Kitchener stitch, check out this video from Lucy Neatby.
The Sock Toe Chimney. It has a catchy name, and it's really quite clever.
